Montagnards come to Phnom Penh

Sixteen Montagnard asylum seekers arrived in Phnom Penh on September 2 and were placed

under UNHCR protection while being interviewed to determine their refugee status.

The group, eight men, one woman, and seven children, were retrieved in Ratanakkiri

province. UNHCR has received reports of other asylum seekers who are hiding in the

jungle in Mondulkiri province. It has not yet received permission from the government

to investigate.

Including the new arrivals, there are 257 Montagnards under UNHCR protection in Cambodia.
